Gray and white--white face, chest, tummy, feet; the grey part is tabby marked or almost spotted in the right light; you might not even notice the markings in most lighting.
He almost looks like he has eye-liner on--it makes his eyes really striking against his white face (says proud grandmama) He has a short tail (about half the length of a regular tail, with a crook in it, that you can feel but not really see, about an inch away from his rump.
We got him at the shelter a couple of months ago--they weren’t quite sure of his age, but he seems to be about 8-9 months old. Very active, but a lap sitter and a shoulder cat. LOUD meow. And about the most tolerant cat to being picked up and held in just about any position than I’ve met--almost as flexible as a ferret (who remind me of holding a largish snake--they fold their front legs back along their body and just kind of slide through your hands, bending their long neck around in all directions).
Our last cat was grey and white too, but with no trace of tabby stripes. And her face was rather cobby. This guy is more long legged with a longer slightly roman-nosed face--that, his loud meow and the crooked tail makes me think he has some asian blood, though not anywhere near as elegant or aristocratic looking as the purebred types are.
